PEAKAGO 7-INCH WINDOWS 10 FANLESS MINI-LAPTOP LAUNCHED FOR $269 AND UP

Peakago Computer has started an IndieGoGo campaign for its 7″ fanless laptop and mini-PC the Peakago. The campaign has raised 831% of the original target funding on its first day.

The Peakago is not a new idea, as there have been a number of 7″ to 9″  display laptops that offer Windows operating systems. The advent of the pocket sized laptop has inspired a number of different versions of similar types and operating systems. The Pretech 700Mi Mini is one of those iterations that was reported on here and is a look-alike to the Peakago. In fact, Peakago and the Pretech are from the same tooling company.

The campaign does say the display has a 178° viewing area, but this unit is very portable and could easily be used in a densely populated locale, so maybe such a wide viewing angle might inspire the manufacturer to develop a privacy screen.  It must be said that such a wide viewing angle is also a real boon to such a small display.

Pricing For Crowdfunding Early Bird :

  • 4GB RAM/64GB storage for $269
  • 8GB RAM/128GB storage for $339
  • 8GB RAM/128GB  storage+ 4G LTE for $399

Some Good, Some Missing, Features

The Peakago has a 360º hinge that allows the mini-laptop to become a tablet. There is an inexpensive webcam, which is somewhat new to the 7″ mini-laptop realm. The keyboard isn’t backlit and there is no fingerprint reader, which is becoming a standard issue now. No support for an active stylus.

There is fast charging with a USB Type-C connector, not a power cord. There is a micro HDMI port for display expansion. Although it seemed a little bit ambitious to run a screen of the size in the promotional.
